and 8 pairs socks/hosiery. Diapers are still needed more than socks. (Although socks are still accepted.)

There is always a need for socks. It is a joy to give a new pair of socks to someone who is without. Thank you for donating socks to this ministry. Socks may be placed in the bin in the church narthex.
Albany County Nursing Home residents love small blankets & prayer shawls. St. Peter’s NICU newborns need small, soft, warm caps. Hand-made items, knitting & crochet supplies donated to this ministry are appreciated. Thank you for leaving them in the 'Knitting Bin' in the church narthex. 
On the 1st Sunday each month at 3:45 & help with serving dinner.
